Cameron flagstone..

I am new on this site.. I just had a patio floor and firpit made with Cameron flagstone. I also had ribbons cut into my existing concrete using the same stone. Although it looks great I have been told that I need to seal it. There are so many products and I am confused as to what to use. I don't know the difference between and impregnator and enhancer. Some products advise roll on, some say spray on....please advise me on the best way to go. I would like to seal and bring out the color...not looking for a high gloss but a soft natural look... We live in so. Calif and it gets hot in the summer,... Any advise would be appreciated

Keith

Most good sealers are impregnators. If you want to enhance the colour, use an "Enhancing Impregnator sealer......

As said,use an enhancing sealer such as Miracle enhance and seal.Your stone may be pretty porous,allow it to soak in then wipe off excess within a couple minutes.
